It is almost impossible to not have heard Arlen Roth’s stunning guitar work. His discography includes contributions to many of the world’s top guitar players and recording artists. Arlen’s debut album won the Montreux Critics Choice Award in 1978. He’s the coach behind Ralph Macchio in Crossroads and his current work with Levon Helm covers an impressive spectrum of styles. In his signature model, versatility was Arlen’s top requirement, an instrument that would be exemplary for fingerstyle or flatpicking lead work. The same instrument needed to be capable of jazz phrasings or a classical repertoire. The adaptability of our OM made it the perfect foundation for this signature guitar. The specially selected vintage Sitka Spruce soundboard on the finest old Indian Rosewood body is treated with an elegant amber sunburst fade and trimmed in Tortoise and Ivoroid binding. Arlen Roth’s signature is tastefully engraved in mother of pearl at the seventeenth fret. This hot rod instrument is voiced for an even EQ with power beyond expectations. This is a guitar that can handle it all and look great doing it.

ARLEN ROTH SIGNATURE GUITAR

[ LEARN MORE ]

Built to Arlen's exacting specs - Vintage bridge with solid brass compensated saddle for truer intonation, vintage string spacing and a slightly hotter bridge pickup. When I met Arlen, he told me of the many attempts other companies had made to recreate the tone and feel of his prized 1953 classic. My challenge was to meet those expectations as well as provide the vast array of tones heard on my Classic II.

So here it is. A guitar that embodies the tones of the golden age, with the addition of beautifully balanced acoustic tone, gut wrenching grind, singing sustain along with all the quack and twang you can imagine. I am very proud of this accomplishment and honored to have worked with such a demanding musician that knows he doesn't have to settle and doesn't allow you to either.

Here is just a snippet about his long and talented career.   We are thrilled he has found a Thompson OM Brazilian to play!...Continue Reading.
